As our programs at Dechinta continue to grow, we have witnessed the transformative impact that intergenerational land reconnection has on the strength, knowledge, and wellbeing of the Dene communities that we work with. As we have grown over the past few years, we have been able to offer more programs to students and community members that are committed to revitalizing and practicing Dene culture. In doing so, we have seen how a culturally-informed curriculum fosters a sense of cultural pride in communities while increasing individual confidence around local protocols, practices and skills.
